Pumpkin Spice… and everything nice!!!

October 7, 2011



I still remember the first time I was offered a piece of pumpkin pie and since I was at my first official Thanksgiving dinner with an American family I took a slice. I needed a lot of whipped cream and coffee to get that thing down. I couldn’t believe people would eat something so “yucky” and different and enjoy it on top of that! It was definitely not part of the “normal” German diet I grew up with.

Who would have thought that years later I would come to love everything pumpkin spice flavored. The proof is there…the freezer is packed with pumpkin spice waffles which I enjoyed for breakfast,  the cabinet is filled with pumpkin spice tea which I enjoy a cup of nightly, our house is filled with the scents of pumpkin spice coming from the air fresheners scattered around and the special pumpkin spice coffee is already on the list. I will be buying some shortly since October has finally arrived and I cannot wait to enjoy my first cup!!!

Do you remember something that you never thought you would eat or drink and which you can’t live without now?

    I went almost my entire life HATING bananas. But, about 7 years ago (in the keys) we stumbled upon a banana tree. I tried one, and ever since, I love them!
